All the streetlights on Main Street know my shadow
All the stars up in the sky know all my wishes
And the sidewalk on your street knows my footsteps
And the stars keep tellin' me I'm repetitious

I keep wishin' for you
I keep wishin' for you
It's more than you'd ever do all alone
On and on and on
I keep wishin' for you

I keep wishin' for you
I keep wishin' for you
It's more than you'd ever do in a pinch
Honey, it's a cinch
To keep wishin' for you

All the boys down at the pool hall got my number
Some gal up in some hotel got my shoes
Ah, but I still got my last, bottom dollar
Lucky me, I never lost more than I could lose

I keep wishin' for you
I keep wishin' for you
It's more than you'd ever do all alone
If you can't wish on your own
I keep wishin' for you

I keep wishin' for you
I keep wishin' for you
It's more than you'd ever do in a squeeze
It ain't nothin' to sneeze at
Wishin' for you

All the dogs down at the dump yard can hear me whistle
As I walk through my hometown wild as a stranger
Oh, but the kiss of love is hotter than a pistol
And I think it's safe to say I love the danger

I keep wishin' for you
I keep wishin' for you
It's more than you'd ever do all alone
If you can't wish on your own
I keep wishin' for you

I keep wishin' for you 
I keep wishin' for you 
It's more than you'd ever do, in the wind
And when the wind don't blow even then
I keep wishin' for you
